The British Film Institute and Anthony Minghella's family will celebrate his life and work and mark the first anniversary of his death with a movie marathon to be held on his birthplace, the Isle of Wight.

The charity tribute will take place over the weekend of March 13 -15 and will screen seven of his films. Alan Rickman will be among those who worked with Minghella to give talks at certain screenings.

Gioia Minghella, Anthony's sister, said: 'Anthony was proud of his island roots and we want to remember him in the best way possible, by celebrating his work and supporting people less fortunate. We hope a number of his close friends who appeared in his films, will be with us. And we hope the industry, his fans and the island will join us in celebrating his extraordinary artistic achievements.'

The films being screened include Truly Madly Deeply, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The English Patient, Mr. Wonderful, Breaking and Entering and Cold Mountain.

The event will raise funds to support charities for local young people.
